The study was based on four specific objectives: (i) to determine the profile of respondents in terms of gender, age, marital status, level of education, position in the organization, length of service, (ii) to determine the levels of performance of human resources management on crisis management , (iii) to determine the level of extent of crisis management in telecom firms in Uganda (iv) to determine if there is a significant relationship between human resource management and crisis management in telecom firms in Uganda (v) to recommend strategies that will further enhance employee performance basing on the findings of the study.
